In 1992, David Pearson founded Ski Verbier with just one chalet. Since then it has evolved into the success it is today. Owing to the creation of separate venture Verbier Exclusive with adventurer Tom Avery in 2009 and the fusion of this business with Ski Verbier in 2014, Ski Verbier Exclusive now has 18 luxury chalets, including the former hotel turned exclusive-use lodge, No 14 Verbier. Indisputably a playground for the international elite, Verbier combines dramatic alpine scenery and celebrated slopes with a vibrant social scene that brings people back year after year. And it’s not just about skiing here; the summer months bring a whole host of other alpine activities, from horseback riding to hiking and cycling, along with the season’s schedule of festivals and jubilant outdoor events.
